  • Did you know-At the gift shop you can buy a full bottle of wine for your day in the park for $20-25 verses a glass for $7? Buy the bottle!
  • Griffon splashdown area: great place to cool off on hot days. No lines & awesome view!
  • Single rider line!
  • The black stripe used to be a flip flop - got caught in the wheel of this ride
  • Go to the bathroom ahead of time. :D
  • This is spelt wrong!
  • The best spot is definitely up front on either end for some added fun.
  • Very nice waiting area - many fans to keep it cool on a summer day.
  • Ride commando in running shorts
  • Front row outside seats is the only way to go!
  • Sit in the front row. Looks intimidating but it's worth it. Best ride and so smooth!
  • Don't make a mistake and not sit in the front row. The front row is where it's at. It's rare a coaster has me scream but the first drop on the Griffon allows little option.
  • Best ride in the park.
  • Ride in the front on one of the edges. It's the most exhilarating experience!
  • Go on the front row, well worth the extra wait!
  • Get a snowcone after riding front row!
